The original hoses will do the job, you must have to cut the hose at the metal bit, try to get it as tight to the metal as you can to save as much hose as possible.

Hi, sorry to drag up an old thread but I'm going for Stage 2 or Stage 2+ on my GTI and I've just giddily bought this on eBay because I got it for £45! The guy said he took it off his 2013 S3. Will this be alright? I'm having doubts all of a sudden, that old saying if something seems too good to be true then it probably is! https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/233509365713

Cheers

Terrible pics  :grin:  Yeah it will bolt right in.  It's the same intercooler as the Golf 6 R, which I have in my Edition 30, zero fitment issues  :happy2:

I've run 2+ with that intercooler and monitored intake temps very closely, and they were absolutely fine.

I think that the only recommended intercooler oem is the S3. since the 6R is with plastic sides and almost the same in terms of measurements and the same thickness 32 as that of the gti 5 200hp

  617x418x32  golf gti,leon fr, A3. (all 200cv) ref                          1K0145803 S
  626x405x32  golf gti ed, R6, cupra 240 and 265, and some S3    1K0145803AK
   
       S3   616x409x40   S3    ALL ALUMINIUM                                  1K0145803P

6R and 2009 S3 use exactly the same intercooler, and it's certainly thicker than the GTI cooler.  Audi switched to the plastic end tank one later in the 8P's life.

sorry to drag this thread on a bit longer ... but does anybody have any experience of Nissens aftermarket intercoolers? I have been made aware that they do one with alloy ends for the S3 with equivalent part number 1K0145803P and about £250... How bad can it be as an upgrade??

£250 buys you a genuine 2009 S3/6R one.  Why chance an unknown entity for the same price?  This obsession with ally end tanks...for a road car....is a bit unnecessary, imo.  It's a far heavier intercooler with minimal gain over a plastic ended one.  The end tanks are obscured by the bumper anyway so don't get any air flow.  The only advantage of metal end tanks is boost pressure capacity......but not even a K04 running flat out will burst plastic end tanks, so it's a moot point.  Big hybrid turbo running big pressure....different story.  Metal end tanks will be of benefit.

I get the thing with the end tanks - I've just not even seen plastic ended new IC's at that price and saw this one.

I've only just come back into all this lark - where would you get a genuine new one at that price from then?

I fitted the nissens one as i couldnt find a used S3/6R IC and it seems fine. Only issue i had was the screw for the AC pipes on the side didn't line up. Just seen this on Ebay which i believe is the one off the 6R

From the dealer.  That's what I paid a few years back.  Not sure what the price is now but I was quite surprised an OEM S3 cooler was that cheap.  Audi moved from ally ends to plastic in 2009.....but to compensate they improved the main core, which is more important than the end tank material.
